Afzal's friends....there are so many of you, and I do not know most of your names. Some of your faces are familiar because you keep cropping up in Afzal's collection of photos or videos. One thing is common in these photos or videos -they all captured Afzal's smiling face. That tells me just one thing - Afzal is always happy among his FRIENDS!
When he was hospitalised in December, 2010, I did not plan to let any of his friends know. Simply because at first I did not think Afzal would stay long in the hospital and also because Afzal said there's no need to bother people. But somehow, news reached his friends and you all came from far and near, old friends, new ones and I witnessed an amazing outpouring of emotions, some more significant then others.
Before Eid-ul-Fitr comes to a close, I thought it is fitting to attach this video that Aiysha has done, which I dedicate to all of Afzal's FRIENDS out there. May Allah always guide you to the right path......Mama Afzal.
